    New poster here from sunny Fla. Figured I'd share this very nice New Haven 600at I picked up. 40 years old and hardly a mark on it. Came with 2 barrels. 28in c-lect choke and 24in smooth cyl bore with rifle sights. I'm 72 and don't hunt or trap/skeet shoot. Just wanted something for hd. So I chopped the 28in barrel to 18. Almost hated to do it.

    Good looking shotgun! I would have cut it to 18"as well. I've had several 870's and several Mossbergs, but the two I've kept are both Mossbergs. I think you made a good HD choice!

    Until I decide what to do for a sight I just used a brass cap nut from the cap of an old outside lite I had. It's a little over sized for my old eyes. Attached it with some vhb tape. Like they use for the clipdraw on a hand gun. Stuff really holds.

    Welcome to the group! Nice old lead slinger, good job cutting a barrel down and remounting the bead!

    I had it out at the public range this am. They used to have a lane at the end of the pistol line for shotguns. 7-15-25 yards were available. Now you can use any lane but only at 15 yards and 25 round limit. Thought that might be a little far for a try out and not having shot a 12ga in awhile. I was using a slightly used shoot-n-see 12in target on a cardboard backer. 4 rounds of Estate target loads and a couple of rounds of Federal 000 buck. Patterned much better then I thought for an 18in barrel. The Estate ammo lit up that shoot-n-see target. Almost the whole load right on the target. The 000 blew a large hole almost dead center. I should have kept the target to show but is was kinda torn up. I know, I know, like the big fish that got away. LOL
